Jeff Faraudo came over to my cubicle to figure out some phone posting stuff with multimedia guy Ray St. Germain. That’s Ray on the left, hunched over Jeff’s Samsung BlackJack II running Windows Mobile 6.5. Jeff also wanted to get set up on Twitter so he could start posting about San Jose State University football he’ll be covering and so he’ll have the hang of it once UC Berkeley’s Cal Bears men’s basketball season gets under way. Features copy editor Rebecca Parr didn’t look up when features writer Laura Casey was passing by, but I did and liked seeing both of them with my and Danny Willis’ bobblehead dolls nearby.
Video game columnist Gieson Cacho is in the background holding forth on a game, most likely to multimedia producer Karim Amara behind those monitors, while senior web producer and movie reviewer Randy Myers just looks up from his desk and back at me with the perfect, long-meeting-honed Buster Keaton deadpan only he can muster. And then, on my way back to my cubicle, I saw senior multimedia editor for mobile Virginia Griffey inspecting a calendar and asked her to hold that pose just for a moment.
